Togo Dog True Story


Togo was ill as a young puppy and required intensive nursing from leonhard Seppala's wife. He was very bold and rowdy, thus seen as difficult and mischievous, showing all the signs of becoming a canine delinquent according to one reporter. At first, this character was interpreted as evidence that he had been spoiled by the individual attention given to him during his illness. As togo did not seem suited to be a sled dog, leonhard Seppala gave him away to be a pet dog when Togo was 6 months of age.



After a few weeks as a home pet, Togo dog jumped through the glass of a closed window and ran few miles back to his original master's house (leonhard Seppala's). This devotion to the team impressed Seppala, so Seppala did not try to give togo away again. However, Togo dog continued to cause trouble by breaking out of the kennel when leonhard Seppala took the team out on runs. Togo would attack the lead dogs of oncoming teams, "as if to clear the way for his master seppala". one day, togo attacked a much stockier malamute leader dog and was mauled and severely injured. When he recovered, Togo dog stopped attacking other teams' lead dogs. This would eventually prove a valuable early experience, as it was difficult to teach a lead dog to keep a wide berth of oncoming teams.


When Togo was eight months old, he proved his worth as a sled dog. He had run after the team yet again and slept, he didn't noticed, near the cabin where leonhard Seppala was spending the night. The next day, leonhard Seppala spotted him far off in the distance, and understood why his dogs had been so keyed up. Togo the dog continued to make Seppala's work difficult, trying to play with the work dogs and leading them in charges against reindeer, pulling them off the trail. Leonhard Seppala had no choice but to put him in a harness to control him, and was surprised that Togo instantly settled down. As the run wore on, Seppala kept moving Togo up the line until, at the end of the day, he was sharing the lead position with the lead ruskky dog. Togo had logged more than 75 miles on his 1st day in harness, which was unheard of for an inexperienced young sled dog, especially a small puppy. Seppala called him an "infant prodigy", and later added that "I had found a natural-born leader, something I had tried for years to breed" he was really happy.

Togo strat the training, and after a couple of years he filled the lead dog position. Togo became one of Seppala's most treasured sled dogs, a close and mutually beneficial relationship that would continue to the end of Togo's life. At the time of the historic Serum Run, he was twelve years old and had been a lead dog for seven years.
According to the historian Earl Aversano, in 1960 - 1961, in his old age, Seppala recalled "I never had a better dog than Togo. His stamina, intelligence, loyalty could not be improved upon. Togo was the best dog that ever traveled the Alaska trail.

Tog the dog is alaska hero at that time, togo is a symbol of royalty and intelligence.
